For time:

Accumulate 5 minutes of Farmer Carry, 1.5 pood

1K Row

30 Handstand push-ups

Back on the injured reserve (IR) list. This time i'm not fuckin' around; I'm going to a chiropractor ASAP. A Dr. Yu in Redondo Beach, whom comes highly recommended from many members at CFSB and LAXCF. Dr. Yu was actually in attendance at the BoomBox Party this past Friday. 

I've been rolling out on the lacrosse ball and have isolate the injury to the top half of my hip joint... so if you were to man handle my left ass check, it would only be on the upper half of my nalga with a downward angle. Rolling the bottom half of the joint does nothing, or at least there is not painful grimace on my face. 

After about 30 minutes of lacrosse ball, foam roller, plow stretch, groiners, active squat, et al... all of which brought this feeling of hot searing pain to the area (very similar to the feeling of getting tattooed I noticed), I attempted to jump rope to warm up. Jumping no good. 

Diso and I brainstormed a modified WOD for me (above) and I went at it. The farmer carry was difficult. I did holds in 20-30 sec intervals with 10 second breaks. My forearms were screaming. As were my triceps. The row was interesting. I use only my right leg. I let my left leg dangle on a plate, fully extended. My right leg definitely got fatigued, but I didn't really feel gassed at the end of the 1000m. 

Onto the HSPUs, I got inverted facing the wall and squared off my hips- which is an advanced progression over doing them on the box or tripod style. My HSPUs were strict, not kipping. I got through the first 11 straight. Then did 3. Then did 2. Then 5. Then 2. Then 1. Then 2. Then 1. Then 1. My arms were burned out. 

Then intensity wasn't there today. I don't think it will be for awhile. But I'm glad that I'm doing SOMETHING. I can't not be at the box. Even on this injury. 

My sleep was horrible last night because of my hip/back. I hope tonight's is better. I feel like being in any one position for too long (like driving in the car or laying on one side) becomes dreadfully uncomfortable. Oy. 

I'm strangely calm and at peace. I feel brave.
